Combined

This course is designed for those who wish to make the very most of the opportunity to learn a foreign language. It consists, like the intensive course, of 20 group lesson hours per week, from 09:10 until 13:00, but in the afternoon it offers 4 or 8 extra hours of individual lessons per week.

This course is suited for those students who wish to study intensively and on specific topics but have little time available: the minimum duration of the course is 1 week. In the individual lessons students can choose to specialise in a particular area of the language, e.g. business Italian, Italian for journalism or politics, literature, conversation, history of art, etc.

The advantage of the individual lessons is that they are tailored to the specific requirements of the student, and therefore the pace and content of the lessons are adapted according to the individual so that he or she may learn in a relaxed atmosphere with the undivided attention of the teacher.

Minimum age is 18 years .
